Jake Kadel, the head coach for men’s and women’s wrestling at Iowa Wesleyan University, joined us on Tiger Nation this morning and he thinks highly of his two talented programs.

“We have high expectations for our program in general. We have a good chunk of our staff, we all wrestled at the Division I level, so that’s kind of how we run our program is like a Division I program. The expectations are high, and the kids know that, but we just got to put our athletes in the best position to reach their goals whether that be academically or athletically. Obviously, our goal is to win, so we got a little bit of development and time that we got to put in for that, but I’m super excited about this year. Our women’s team will have a full team this year, we’ll be top to bottom very solid. We have some extremely talented individuals on our women’s team and our men’s team.”
